To assess the impact of Malawi’s national HIV response and guide future investment and programs, ICAP worked with the Ministry of Health to implement the MPHIA HIV population-based survey, which estimated prevalence, incidence, and access to HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. Ongoing analysis of MPHIA data will continue to inform national health strategy.
